Catholic Prayer: Angelus Domini (The Angel of the Lord)

Description:

The Catholic family, school, or workplace would benefit from praying the Angelus at noon every day. Traditionally, the Angelus is recited at 6:00 am, 12:00 pm and 6:00 pm. The Regina Coeli is prayed during the Easter season instead of the Angelus.

A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful, who devoutly recite these prayers according to the formula indicated for the time of the year.

Prayer:

V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,

R. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary...

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord,

R. Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

Hail Mary...

V. And the Word was made flesh,

R. And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary...

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray

Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
